Essential oils offer manifold beneficial properties such as fragrance, being anti-microbial / anti-bacterial, acting as decongestant, and offering psychological benefits. In aromatherapy, the application, eg. inhaling essential oils, is used to stimulate the olfactory system. Nanoemulsions open a new level of applications and bioavailability to the use of essential oils. In order to prepare long-term stable and transparent nano-emulsions, a potent emulsifier (surfactant) is required. Stuph nano-emulsifiers are high-quality food-grade, easy-to-use surfactant systems, which enable you to formulate nano-emulsions at any scale within a few minutes.
Why Stuph Nanoemulsions?
Nano-emulsions such as nano-sized oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions expand their application into the food, beverage and cosmetic production due to their special properties. Nano-emulsions have a great bioavailability, offer a clear “see-through” appearance and can be flexibly used in many products such as nano-enriched beverages, edibles, dietary supplements, and cosmetics.
How to Prepare Very Small Nanoemulsions
Stuph is an efficacious, clean food-grade nano-emulsifier, which helps you to formulate your essential oil-in-water nanoemulsion, such as the lavender oil-in-water nanoemulsion as demonstrated in the video below.
When preparing a nano-emulsion containing essential oil with Stuph, the essential oil component can be mixed/diluted in a carrier oil. Afterwards, the oil phase is emulsified into the water (aqueous) phase using Stuph nano-emulsifier. Sonication improves and accelerates the nano-emulsification process. After a few minutes, the transparent, long-term stable oil-in-water nanoemulsion is ready.

About Essential Oils
Essential oils are a form of concentrated hydrophobic liquid, which contain volatile aroma compounds derived from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted, such as lavender oil, rose oil, ginger oil, sandalwood oil, peppermint oil, lemon oil or (sweet) orange oil.
Essential oils are widely used and can be found in various products, such as in food and drinks for flavoring additive, in perfumes and toiletries for fragrance, and in therapeutic and pharmaceutical items for medicinal effects. Essential oils are approved as safe ingredients for food, medical and therapeutic products.
